Join the Faculty Director of the Nuclear Security Program in International Security Studies, Alex Debs, for a conversation with Nina Tannenwald on her working paper, “The Nuclear Nonproliferation Regime as a “Failed Promise” of the Liberal International Order: Contestation and Self-Undermining Dynamics.” The paper analyzes endogenous sources of contestation in the nuclear nonproliferation regime. It argues that self-undermining dynamics are contributing to the erosion of cooperation within the regime, with larger implications for the future prospects of both the global nuclear order and the broader liberal international order.
Tannenwald is a Senior Lecturer and Director of Undergraduate Studies in the Department of Political Science at Brown University.
